for you just a bit of that op ed piece that he wrote in "the washington post" on friday. obama erred in trying to use newtown to build support for his positions on taxes, energy and eupl aeu congratulations and compounded the error by sending joe biden off to conduct a study, an unnecessary delay when solutions were obvious. once the president took his foot off the accelerator no other action, not even michael bloomberg's ad campaign could maintain the momentum. directed very much at the president there, jim. >> right although of course i hope hillary clinton loved that line about biden failing, didn't she? i think what's really happening also is a greater precision about what is going on. rand paul asked last week, look, show me one thing in these gun proposal has would have stopped these guys from killing. and i don't think anybody had a good answer to them. as a matter of fact will salatan at slate.com this morning went through the cases of jar rod laughner, james holmes and the guy in connecticut, adam lan today and said these people were all clearly mentally ill, they were crazy

greatly. >> certainly president obama is trying to get the ball back in his court, so to speak, having the fire needed around the country and in washington, d.c. to move on some type of legislation for gun violence reform in this country. as we used president obama as an example, and americans see the first ever african-american president, does that give people a reason to think that we truly do live in a post racial america when we really don't? >> certainly, some people have tried to make that argument. i think when we looked at how our country, some part of our country reacted, we saw the rise of the tea party and frankly, the most vocal profane element of the tea party out there. it reminded people that we can't be post racial until we're post racism. we can't be post racial as long as people are showing up to rallies when they put the white back in the white house. and we as a country, i think all ultimately, most of us yearn to be that one nation, under god, with liberty and justice for all. tragedy is, my daughter is 7. she thinks per where she lives. our job as grown-ups is to
